Horoscopes for Friday, August 22, 2014

Aries

March 21-April 19

Life has been good fun recently, but as the Sun moves into organized Virgo, you realize that you need to start paying more attention to your work. Boring! Or is it? It doesn't have to be, especially if you're prepared to put your heart and soul into your job. If the thought of that is laughable in the extreme, then maybe this is your chance to start looking for a job that offers you better prospects or more satisfaction.

During the next four weeks, the Virgo Sun urges you to devote plenty of time to your home and family. You may also be surprisingly reluctant to stray too far from your own front door, but that's exactly as it should be right now because you're in the mood for familiar faces and places. Anything or anyone that offers comfort and emotional security will be all right by you.

Now you'll enjoy improving the way you communicate with others, as the blazing Sun dives into Virgo and your third house of communications and creativity. Why not invest in a new program or upgrade your computer, boost your mobile phone or simply treat yourself to some writing paper and a book of stamps. Take more trouble with the way you express yourself, especially if you sometimes give people the wrong impression.

During the next four weeks, there will be occasions when you'll be very interested in the value of things. This might be the spiritual value of a belief or activity that gives extra meaning to each day, or it could be the monetary value of your possessions. Although this is a good time to concentrate on your finances, don't do it to the exclusion of all else, or judge people purely by what they do or don't own.

Your self-confidence rises by several notches as the Sun strides into your sign, riding high during the coming four weeks. This will be a fantastic chance to push ahead with projects that will increase your self-esteem and teach you more about your abilities. As a Virgo, you have an innate tendency to do yourself down, but right now you need to remind yourself how wonderful you are. And that's an order!

Libra

September 23-October 22

During the next four weeks, there will be times when you long to be left to your own devices. That's because you'll be feeling quite solitary and contemplative and won't feel like making the effort to be sociable. You may have to explain these phases to your nearest and dearest, so they don't think you've suddenly gone off them or that you've got something to hide.

Friends will play a big role in your life during the next four weeks, so be sure to make plenty of time for them. Why not get out your diary and start making dates and arrangements, especially if you haven't seen much of certain pals lately? This is the perfect opportunity to increase your social circle if it's looking a bit thin, so consider joining a group or organization that might contain some possible friends.

If you've been doing a lot of hard work recently and have started to despair that you'd ever get anywhere with it, don't worry because your ship could come in during the next four weeks. That's if you've done your job properly, of course. If you've been getting by with the minimum effort and covering up all your careless mistakes, you could soon be found out. However, if you've done your very best, you'll have nothing to worry about.

Your horizons are widening, but the question is how brave do you feel about exploring them? You've already faced some exciting opportunities and there are more on the way, but they won't be much good to you if you can't muster the courage to make the most of them. Take things one step at a time, it's much less daunting.

Close relationships will be even more important to you than usual during the next four weeks. Put extra effort into your relationship with your partner, especially if you've been together for so long that you have a tendency to take one another for granted. If you're single, you could soon become heavily involved in a relationship that seems fated in some way. Perhaps you were meant to be together?
